Maryland Sites Attract Hollywood's Attention 

 

Maryland Sites Attract Hollywood’s Attention
 

In the 1920s, to describe Maryland’s varied topography and culture, a reporter for National Geographic magazine dubbed the state “America in Miniature.” Hollywood picked up on that fact and, especially during the past decade, has been moving cameras and stars into Maryland so that the state can double for locations such as New York City and Washington, D.C.

And, of course, sometimes Maryland gets to play itself – a charming place that’s home to big-city fun and small-town pleasures.

What makes Hollywood so interested in this tiny state? The Maryland Film Office works hard to promote the state to location scouts and directors. A skilled workforce and a supportive business community also help to make the state attractive to Hollywood.

But two Baltimore-born directors, Barry Levinson and John Waters, are responsible for the early attention from Hollywood. Though their styles are quite different, their passion for their hometown is very much the same.

Levinson’s series of Baltimore-based films, starting with Diner and later including Tin Men, Avalon and Liberty Heights, pays tribute to life in 1960s-era Baltimore, when the director himself was growing up in the city. Levinson didn’t stop at the big screen, however. His NBC television production, Homicide: Life on the Street, earned critical raves and a devoted audience. Baltimore’s residents and political leaders were simultaneously baffled and thrilled that a television series about crime helped land their city on the Hollywood map; but even today, years after the show has left the airwaves in its original release, visitors continue to flock to “Charm City” to follow in the footsteps of the drama’s detectives.

Waters, on the other hand, aims his attention toward the quirky side of life in Baltimore – the beehive hairdos and wacky characters who give the city its distinct personality. Such films as Hairspray and Serial Mom have become cult classics. In fact, Hairspray managed to make the transition from celluloid to stage and became a Tony Award-winning musical on Broadway.  

The connection between Hollywood and Maryland was further solidified in 1999, when the state began hosting its own springtime film festival (www.mdfilmfest.com). The festival highlights films as well as the venues in which they are shown. Baltimore, the host city for the festival, is home to three movie houses that are the delight of filmgoers: the historic Senator Theatre and the newly refurbished Charles Theatre and the Rotunda Cinematheque.

What follows is a list of attractions, museums, parks, historic sites, restaurants and towns that have played a role in motion pictures. There’s also a list of motion pictures filmed in Maryland over the past three decades.

A Sampling of Movie Sites in Maryland  

Baltimore City 

B&O Railroad Museum
Jessica Lange took her kids here for an afternoon of fun in Men Don’t Leave. A few of the trains in the collection have also been loaned out for use in films, including Wild, Wild West. The Wild, Wild West train, called “William Mason,” hit the big screen most recently in Tuck Everlasting and Gods and Generals. 901 W. Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD 21223, 410-752-2490, www.borail.org

Baltimore Museum of Art
Holly Hunter’s character restored art here in Home for the Holidays, and it stood in for the Brooklyn Museum of Art in Red Dragon. 10 Art Museum Drive, Baltimore, MD 21218, 410-396-7100, www.artbma.org 

The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore
What more appropriate place for some of the action in a film called Twelve Monkeys than a zoo? This one happens to be home to an award-winning children’s zoo. And for those who really like primates, there’s a terrific Chimpanzee Forest. Druid Hill Park, Baltimore, MD 21217, 410-366-5466, www.marylandzoo.org 

Belvedere Hotel
The 12th-floor ballroom of this hotel, which hosts ballroom-dancing classes on Thursday nights, was used in For Richer or Poorer. The hotel’s John Eager Howard Room was also used in the movie Tin Men. (This room is not open to the public, however.) Besides hosting these dance nights and a variety of weddings and other special events, the hotel is home to the popular Owl Bar restaurant and a 13th-floor club featuring live music. 1 E. Chase Street, Baltimore, MD 21202, 410-347-0888, www.theowlbar.com

Bengies Drive-In Theatre
This circa 1956 drive-in, one of only a few remaining theaters of its kind on the East Coast, played a role in Cecil B. Demented. It continues to be a popular spot for family outings or “date nights,” showing multiple movies on the big screen each weekend night. 3417 Eastern Boulevard, Baltimore, MD 21224, 410-687-5627,  

Druid Hill Park
The “she-male” in John Waters’ offbeat Pink Flamingos made his/her appearance here. The park is usually home to less frightening creatures, as this is the location of The Baltimore Zoo (see above). 900 Druid Park Lake Drive, Baltimore, MD 21217, 410-396-6106  

Fells Point
This neighborhood has an old-fashioned, nautical feel about it. For eight seasons (1992-99), it was the set of Homicide: Life on the Street. Cast members were regularly spotted in The Daily Grind coffee shop, which has since moved down the street. Jimmy’s, a Baltimore breakfast tradition, was used in some scenes, as was the Waterfront Hotel bar and restaurant. St. Stanislaus church was the site of TV weddings, funerals and baptisms, and it also served as the cast and crew’s cafeteria. But perhaps the most obvious and memorable site here is the old City Pier building, which functioned as the police station. The interior of the City Pier building was also used as the fictional Maryland School for the Arts in Step Up and Step Up 2.

Shakespeare Street, right in the heart of this community, was covered in dirt a few years ago as it was transformed into an old street of New York for Washington Square.

This neighborhood was also the home of Meg Ryan’s character, Annie, in Sleepless in Seattle. Her little row house is situated near the pier, at the end of which visitors can find the bench she sat on as she gazed across the water.

When Will Smith’s character commuted by ferry in Enemy of the State, he arrived at this pier. And it was here that Barry Levinson’s crews erected a mock warehouse that was burned down for a scene in Avalon.

Finally, when Elizabeth McGovern’s character went out on the town in The Bedroom Window, she hit the bar scene in Fells Point. The neighborhood is well known for its watering holes – nearly 100 in the various blocks surrounding the pier and Broadway Market. Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association, 877-BALTIMORE, www.baltimore.org

Fort McHenry National Monument & Historic Shrine
When Jack Warden took Al Pacino up in a helicopter for a spin over Baltimore in . . . And Justice for All, they flew over this star-shaped fort. It’s perhaps better known as the site that pays tribute to Francis Scott Key and his inspiring poem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” E. Fort Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21230, 410-962-4290,  

Fort McHenry Tunnel
The tunnel that drivers traveling Interstate 95 must pass through on their way into and out of Baltimore became Will Smith’s nightmare in Enemy of the State, when he ran through on foot while being pursued by the bad guys. www.mdta.state.md.us/facilities/mchenry.html 

Garrett-Jacobs Mansion/The Engineer’s Club
The historic Garrett-Jacobs Mansion in the fashionable Mount Vernon district is no longer a private home but instead functions as the headquarters for the city’s Engineer’s Club. It’s among the most desirable places in the city to host a wedding or other social function. It has been used in a number of movies, including Diner, Twelve Monkeys, Her Alibi, Major League II, Species II and He Said, She Said. 11 W. Mount Vernon Place, Baltimore, MD 21201, 410-539-6914, www.esb.org 

Greenspring Station
There was a shopping sequence here in Her Alibi, when Paulina Porizkova picked out a knife that Tom Selleck’s character thought was intended for him. Parts of Avalon were also filmed here, though the original restaurant that production used in scenes has now been converted to a bank, jewelry shop and smaller restaurant called Joey Chiu’s Green Spring Station. Foxleigh Management Company, 10749 Falls Road, Baltimore, MD 21093, 410-825-0400  

Hampden
This neighborhood, where one can still find a true Baltimore “hon” (the kind of gal who has a beehive hairdo and talks with a thick Baltimore accent), is where the John Waters character “Pecker” lived in the film of that name. Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association, 877-BALTIMORE, www.baltimore.org 

Harbor Court Hotel
Local director John Waters used this hotel on Baltimore’s Inner Harbor as the site of much action in Cecil B. Demented. This is also where real-life movie stars often stay when they’re in town. 550 Light Street, Baltimore, MD 21202, 410-234-0550, www.harborcourt.com 

Hollywood Diner
This gem was actually moved from its original location in New York during the filming of Diner, the Barry Levinson classic that helped put Baltimore on the cinematic map. Since its debut, the diner was also featured in Sleepless in Seattle, Tin Men and Homicide: Life on the Street. The restaurant is a great spot for breakfast or lunch, and visitors enjoy looking at the many movie photos incorporated into the décor. Don’t miss the milkshakes, which are in a class by themselves. 400 E. Saratoga Street, Baltimore, MD 21202, 410-962-5379  

Howard Street
This is where much of the action took place in Avalon. Today the 800 and 900 blocks of Howard Street are known as “Antique Row.” It’s here that prop masters sourced many of the items used in Guarding Tess. It’s reported that Shirley MacLaine was so intrigued by some of them that she went on a shopping spree in the area before leaving the state. Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association, 877-BALTIMORE, www.baltimore.org

Key Bridge
It’s not exactly how we like Maryland’s waterways to be remembered, but in Random Hearts, the plane crash that brought Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas together occurred in Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay. On the day of filming the crash scene, drivers crossing the bridge saw the remnants of the Hollywood plane and several called the authorities to report a crash.  

Little Havana
This Cuban-inspired restaurant was used for two scenes in The Replacements – the big fight scene and a party scene after a football game. 1325 Key Highway, Baltimore, MD 21230 410-837-9903, www.littlehavanas.com 

M&T Bank Stadium
Not only is the stadium home to the 2001 world-champion Baltimore Ravens, but it also tasted a bit of Hollywood victory when it landed the opportunity to host the action in the comedy The Replacements. 1101 Russell Street, Baltimore, MD 21230, 410-547-8100, www.ravenszone.net 

Mitchell Courthouse
The area around the courthouse was the backdrop in “Live Free or Die Hard”.  The car chase began on Calvert Street and continued on the Lexington Street side of City Hall. Redwood Street and South Street were featured during a scene with Bruce Willis’ car being chased by a low flying helicopter.

Mount Vernon Cultural District
This neighborhood, known as the artistic region of the city, was the setting for much of the action in The Bedroom Window and also played a role in Washington Square. And it’s where Will Smith’s character had a meeting with Lisa Bonet’s character in Enemy of the State. It doubled as New York City for Tim Allen and Kirstie Alley in scenes in For Richer or Poorer; was used in the Barry Levinson tribute to Baltimore, Avalon, and was seen on the big screen in the role of Hannibal Lecter’s neighborhood in Red Dragon. 217 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21201, 410-244-1030, www.mvcd.org 

National Aquarium in Baltimore
Baltimore’s most visited attraction was the scene of a murder in The Bedroom Window. These days the facility is famous for its births, though – three young dolphins were born in 2001 and now regularly perform for visitors. Pier 3, 501 E. Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD 21202, 410-576-3800, www.aqua.org 

Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Though the movie Major League II is about the Cleveland Indians, the action took place here, at the home of the Baltimore Orioles. It’s also where “President” Kevin Kline threw out the first pitch in the comedy Dave and where Chris Rock did the same in Head of State. Actor Edward Norton, who grew up in Maryland, paid tribute to the Orioles in his film The Score, in which his character wore an Orioles cap. 333 W. Camden Street, Baltimore, MD 21201, 410-685-9800, www.theorioles.com 

Peabody Conservatory of Music
This, one of the oldest and most respected music schools in the United States, supports the motion picture arts, as well. Its library, filled with beautiful wrought ironwork, was included in both Washington Square and Men Don’t Leave, and David Hyde Pierce portrayed a professor here – and the brother of Meg Ryan’s character – in Sleepless in Seattle. 1 E. Mount Vernon Place, Baltimore, MD 21202, 410-659-8100, www.peabody.jhu.edu 

Redwood Trust
This former bank building, located just across the street from the Maryland Film Office’s headquarters, was used as a jail in both Twelve Monkeys and The Replacements. In fact, the nightclub that now exists at the site still has Hollywood’s jail bars in place. 200 E. Redwood Street, Baltimore, MD 21202, 410-986-0050 

Senator Theatre
This circa 1939, 900-seat historic movie house is one of the last of its kind showcasing first-run films. Not only has it been used in several movies, but it’s also the favorite site for the premieres of Maryland-made movies. Scores of special events are commemorated in the sidewalk blocks in front of the theater. The Senator has been immortalized on celluloid in Avalon, Twelve Monkeys and Cecil B. Demented. 5904 York Road, Baltimore, MD 21212, 410-435-8338, www.senator.com 

Subway System
Baltimore’s subway doubled for the one in Washington, D.C. in the Kevin Costner film No Way Out and in the Nicole Kidnam film “ The Invasion”. Maryland Transit Administration, 410-539-5000, www.mtamaryland.com 

Walters Art Museum
Clint Eastwood’s character sat in one of the museum’s galleries in Absolute Power, sketching the El Greco painting “St. Francis Receiving the Stigmata.” Later in the film, he and co-star Ed Harris shared lunch in the museum’s former café. The museum was also used in Terry Gilliam’s Twelve Monkeys, in which Bruce Willis looked at a painting called “View of An Ideal City.” It can also be seen as the exterior of Hannibal Lecter’s townhouse in Red Dragon. 600 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21201, 410-547-9000, www.TheWalters.org 

The Washington Monument & Museum
This 178-foot-tall structure, the first architectural monument to George Washington (and crafted by Robert Mills, the same architect who designed the monument in Washington, D.C.), can be seen in the background as Meg Ryan and Rosie O’Donnell walk and talk in Sleepless in Seattle. 609 Washington Place, Baltimore, MD 21201, 410-396-7837  

Werner’s
For more than 50 years, this diner has been an institution in Baltimore – and in Barry Levinson’s movies. It’s where characters from both Tin Men, Liberty Heights and Ladder 49 dined. 231 E. Redwood Street, Baltimore, MD 21202, 410-752-3335  

Woman’s Industrial Exchange
This is where Meg Ryan and Rosie O’Donnell shared a meal – and some girl talk – in Sleepless in Seattle. The Exchange dates to the Civil War, when it was established to help war widows earn an income. It continues to do double duty today as both a restaurant and a place for local artisans to sell their crafts. 333 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21201, 410-685-4388, www.womansindustrialexchange.org   

Annapolis Area
 

BWI Airport
Holly Hunter’s character began her journey Home for the Holidays at this airport, today one of the most rapidly growing airports in the United States. Other movies that have had scenes here include Twelve Monkeys, Major League II and Absolute Power. BWI Airport, MD 21240, 410-859-7111, www.bwiairport.com

St. John’s College
This non-traditional liberal arts college, where students learn by the “Great Books” rather than by standard teaching methods, was the scene of some of the action in the Winona Ryder film Boys. Today, visitors on a Three Centuries Tours walking tour of Annapolis’ historic district can visit the campus as part of their trek. 60 College Avenue, Annapolis, MD 21401, 410-263-2371, www.sjca.edu; Three Centuries Tours, 48 Maryland Avenue, Annapolis, MD 21401, 410-268-7601, www.annapolis-tours.com 

U.S. Naval Academy
Memorable Patriot Games scenes involving Harrison Ford as Jack Ryan took place in the streets outside Gate 3 at the academy. The movie is based on a book by Tom Clancy, a notable author who makes his home in Maryland. 52 King George Street, Annapolis, MD 21402, 410-263-6933, www.navyonline.com


Central Maryland
 

Boordy Vineyards
A party that Julia Roberts’ character attended in Runaway Bride was held here. For non-movie stars, the winery is available for tours and tastings. It also hosts a series of festivals and other special events throughout the year. 12820 Long Green Pike, Hydes, MD 20182, 410-592-5015, www.boordy.com

Bulle Rock Golf Course
The mansion here, which can be seen from the golf course, made its Hollywood debut in Tuck Everlasting. 320 Blenheim Lane, Havre de Grace, MD 21078, 410-939-8887, www.bullerock.com 

Rocks State Park
Many of the outdoor scenes in Tuck Everlasting were shot at this park, which features Kilgore Falls waterfall and the King and Queen Seat, a rock formation that resembles thrones. 3318 Rocks Chrome Hill Road, Jarrettsville, MD 21084, 410-557-7994, www.dnr.state.md.us 

Westminster
Though the movie is about two New Yorkers escaping to Pennsylvania Dutch Country, For Richer or Poorer was actually filmed in Maryland. Tim Allen and Kirstie Alley ran into most of their mishaps on a private farm in this area, but some of the action took place in downtown Westminster, between Route 27 and Longwell Avenue. Carroll County Visitor Information Center, 210 E. Main Street, Westminster, MD 21157, 800-272-1933, www.carr.org/tourism 
 

Eastern Shore
 

Assateague Island National Seashore
This beach, home to the famous band of wild ponies, was used in scenes in Violets Are Blue. These days it earns rave reviews from family travelers, who consider it one of the greatest vacation spots for kids and their parents. 7206 National Seashore Lane, Berlin, MD 21811, 410-641-1441, www.nps.gov/asis 

Berlin
This small village on Maryland’s Eastern Shore has become a miniature Hollywood of sorts, hosting Runaway Bride and later playing home to Tuck Everlasting. Both movies made use of the Atlantic Hotel Inn & Restaurant, a historic property that is the centerpiece of town. The town’s bank can be seen doubling as a Hollywood jail in Tuck Everlasting. Town of Berlin, 10 William Street, Berlin, MD 21811, 410-641-6770, www.berlin.sailorsite.com; Atlantic Hotel Inn & Restaurant, 2 N. Main Street, Berlin, MD 21811, 410-641-3589, www.atlantichotel.com 

The Crab Claw
This old-fashioned crab house, an institution in the waterfront village of St. Michaels, was used for a meal scene in Silent Fall. Navy Point, St. Michaels, MD 21663, 410-745-2900, www.thecrabclaw.com

Elk Neck State Park and Forest
The park, home to Turkey Point Lighthouse, was the backdrop for the dramatic scene in which a car rockets off a cliff in Absolute Power. The park doesn’t bode well for Hollywood types, as it was also the scene of a deadly accident in The Curve, a movie directed by local filmmaker Dan Rosen, and which -- under the name Dead Man’s Curve -- was a hit at Sundance. 4395 Turkey Point Road, North East, MD 21901, 410-287-5333, www.dnr.state.md.us/publiclands/central/elkneck.html

Fair Hill Natural Resource Management Area
Within this nature preserve once existed a ramshackle house that was used as Oprah Winfrey’s home in Beloved. The house found new life – and ultimate demise –- when it was burned down for Tuck Everlasting, but the park itself continues to offer flame-free acres for exploration and outdoor activities. 376 Fair Hill Drive, Elkton, MD 21921, 410-398-1246, www.dnr.state.md.us 

Inn at Perry Cabin
The main wedding that Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughan crashed in “Wedding Crashers”  took place at the country inn. This is also where many celebrities and political figures stay when they’re on vacation on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. 308 Watkins Lane, St. Michaels, MD 21663, 410-745-2200, www.perrycabin.com 

Trimper’s Rides of Ocean City
A favorite place to visit while visitors are in Ocean City, the rides were featured in Violets Are Blue. The company also maintains still photos from that movie. Boardwalk and First Street, Ocean City, MD 21842, 410-289-8617, www.trimpers.com 
 

Southern Maryland  

Flag Ponds Nature Park
The opening scene of The Pelican Brief was shot here, with the assassin coming ashore and driving down a dirt road to begin carrying out his dirty deeds. N. Solomons Island Road, Lusby, MD 20657, 410-586-1477, www.calvertparks.org 
 

Capital Region  

Court House Square, City of Frederick
The charming town square near Frederick’s City Hall was a focus of activity in the opening scenes of Gods and Generals. Tourism Council of Frederick County, 19 E. Church Street, Frederick, MD 21701, 800-999-3613, www.visitfrederick.org

Weinberg Center for the Arts
This restored 1926 movie palace was featured in Liberty Heights. 20 W. Patrick Street, Frederick, MD 21701, 301-228-2828, www.weinbergcenter.org 
 

Western Maryland  

Farmland Near Antietam National Battlefield
The rock-studded pastures near the towns of Sharpsburg, Boonsboro and Hagerstown were used as battlefields in Gods and Generals. Much of the private property in the area – visible on a drive-through – was used during filming. Antietam National Battlefield, Route 65, Sharpsburg, MD 21782, 301-432-5124, www.nps.gov/anti or Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau, 301-791-3246, www.marylandmemories.org

Maryland Theatre
The theater, usually home to the Maryland Symphony Orchestra, is where Shirley MacLaine’s character nodded off in Guarding Tess, much to the chagrin of her bodyguard, Nicolas Cage. 21 S. Potomac Street, Hagerstown, MD 21740, 301-790-3500, www.mdtheatre.org
